Jubilee Hills: Apollo Foundation conducted a training session to highlight the necessity basic life support (BLS) to 1,600 NCC cadets on Wednesday. The aim of the training was to furnish the cadets with basic life support knowledge and skills to handle ant critical cases in the future.

On the occasion, Upasna Kamineni, Vice-Chairperson (CSR), Apollo Hospitals, said, "Accidents and cardiac arrests account for the majority of emergencies, just as they often come with grave consequences. Immediate action, proper skills, and most importantly, basic life support (BLS) knowledge is usually required to handle emergencies. In such cases, time is the greatest determiner of the fate. There is a significant lack of basic knowledge of dealing with these situations."

Dr Azharuddin, a member of Apollo emergency team, said, "While BLS procedure can be very useful, it is important to provide it the right way. There are mainly three components to check while performing BLS.

These are circulation, airway, and breathing. First, the circulation of the patient needs to be checked. In some cases, chest compressions may need to be performed to ensure that blood is circulating throughout the body. Their airway also should be monitored for any foreign objects, sputum, or vomit to ensure that they are breathing. And lastly, breathing should be checked to make sure that the patient is getting oxygen into the lungs and vital parts of the body."
